Something sweet to start off the week. Because really, sometimes you need a little chocolate on a Monday morning don't you think, especially when the wee girl decides the week should start at 5am. Of course not that there are any of these brownies left in the biscuit jar now.
My friend gave me this ingenious present for my birthday, what a great idea, the kids thought it was very cool. All the ingredients are layered all pretty in the jar (before the kids get their hands on it and mix it up a little). You just need to add some melted butter, eggs and vanilla essence.
And so you end up some freshly baked delicious chocolate brownies, and a glass storage jar, because you can never really have to many glass jars I say.
Here is the recipe, but of course you could do this with any of your favourite recipies.
